'Osama Bin Metrosexual'
We've heard all the various takes on Osama Bin Laden's most recent pronouncements - how nutty he is, how he's still dangerous, even where he might be.
But until now, we've heard nothing about the terrorist mastermind's fashion sense:
In the simple phrase, we now have witnessed the arrival of “Osama bin Metrosexual”. The Manalo is a precious resource of the internet and fashion arbiter for both celebrities and politicians. Read his entire piece on OBL so that you can avoid those fashion faux pas that might put you on the shoeblogger's bad fashion list.
With the freshly dyed beard, it is obvious that here is yet another sorry example of the aging man who has resorted to the Grecian Formula SPF50 in order to stave off the ravages of time; the man for whom the grey beard is not the mark of honor and of the life well lived, but of the irretrievable loss of youth.
Trust the Manolo, Osama, this look is not working for you.
Such obvious and heavy-handed attention to personal appearance seems fussy and mannered. It is clear that you have been spending too much time with the Taliban, putting on eye makeup and taking glamour photos. Certainly this is not the image the cave-dwelling man of action and jihad wishes to project. What comes next, video testimonials on Al-Jazeera for the power of Kiehl’s “Facial Fuel Energizing Wash”?
